Start-In: Students Are Responding to

START-IN (Students Are Responding To Intervention), developed by Drs. Judy Montgomery and Barbara J. Moore, is a nine-week, 45-hour, small-group (1-5 students), evidence-based program for struggling readers in elementary grades (preferably grades 3-8).
This Response to Intervention Program consists of 16 Tasks that address the five building blocks of reading according to National Reading Panel (NRP) - Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Text Comprehension. Students with reading difficulties complete the 16 tasks in one hour sessions, five days a week, using reading materials from their classroom or library.

Field tested for three years in urban schools, START-IN reduces unnecessary or inappropriate referrals to special education. The 112-page START-IN book explains the eight steps to begin the program, the research behind the tasks, detailed instructions for completing the tasks, and how to measure student responsiveness.
START-IN includes:
  • Uses only research-based strategies.
  • Teaches rather than tests.
  • Is ideal for underperforming schools.
  • Helps students avoid unnecessary labels.
  • Encourages collaboration between Speech-Language Pathologists, Special Education and Resource Teachers, and Reading Specialists.
  • Meets IDEA 2004 provisions to assess a student's responsiveness to intervention before referral for special education assessment.
  • Includes all activity sheets, data collection forms, parent permission, and administrator checklists in the book and on the CD-ROM.
